We also talked to a lawyer and she said she will take care of all the paper work. I really don't want us to waste money on a lawyer if the chances of us getting approved are low.

Let's put it this way:  using a lawyer does not increase your chances of an approval.

 

I would use the money on airfares instead, personally.

Hi,

I also had a similar question because my fiance and I met once and spent time together for one week. We've known each other for over a year. My fiance's vacation doesn't allow him to travel often. also travel across the ocean is expensive and we decided to save the money for our wedding and honeymoon. I am from Russia.

From a personal perspective and likely USCIS' also, the more face to face visits the better. I was able to make three visits so that we could become better acquainted. The flights were long, but getting together made it all worthwhile. I traveled to visit her because US visitor visas for single Chinese females are very hard to obtain, whereas it was easy for me to get Chinese visitor visas in comparison. I believe that it also helped our case when she was interviewed in Guangzhou. BTW, China is considered a high-fraud country, and we did front load our K1 visa petition. 

 

This entire immigration process is certainly not for the faint of heart, nor light of wallet.

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.
